Both Black Panther movies were deeply rooted in culture. While the first film explored African culture, the second one brought ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures to the present day. But, wouldn’t it be quite amazing if we got to dive deeper into the history of Black Panther, just like we did for Namor? Black Panther revealed how Earth got Vibranium in an opening montage. And it also teased how the Shaman Bashenga became the first Black Panther. Whether or not Marvel chooses to tell his story remains to be seen. But we’ve got some new pieces of art that could be used to shine some light on Bashenga’s backstory.

Who Was King Bashenga?

Back when all tribes of Wakanda were divided, it was this warrior shaman from the lore who united all the tribes. After having a vision of the goddess Bast, he was led to a powerful herb that had grown out of a Vibranium-rich soil. Upon the instruction of Bast, he consumed the herb and became a superhuman. He was the first King of Wakanda, and he also became the first Black Panther. After his demise, his descendants of the Golden tribe continued to take on the Black Panther mantle.
